With Valentine's Day nearly past and spring not quite yet here, I thought it was going to be difficult to characterize this week's hot list.* But, boy oh boy, was I ever wrong!
Granted, a seasonal theme isn't really apparent - the list has as many hearts as it has perfume bottles, Persian carpets, koala bears, and other things! But, as it turns out, "magnificent" is an obvious catch phrase, followed closely by "stunning" and "jaw-dropping"! And the level of skill required to design and execute these cookies is a clear constant as well. (It couldn't be any higher, could it?!)
Enjoy, and a huge congrats to this week's honorees!

So, was I not right about the stellar craftsmanship this week?! Again, kudos to all those cookiers featured this week!
So that no one has an unfair advantage in making it onto a hot list, the algorithm is secret even to site administrators. Only our platform developers know the code, which has been exhaustively tested by those developers and Cookie Connection staff.
